Together these six courses address all the competencies used by IAF to assess Certified Professional Facilitators (CPF), and all the competencies used by ICA to assess Certified Top Facilitator. That means you learn how to create collaborative client relationships, plan appropriate group processes, create and sustain participatory environments, guide groups to appropriate and useful outcomes, build and maintain professional knowledge, and model a positive professional attitude. The Facilitative Leadership Program goes far beyond facilitation competence, however, moving into leadership competence.

Please note that certification is a separate process, not included within any training program. Learn more about how you can earn your CPF designation from IAF.
